Petit Verdot hails from Bordeaux, France, where it is most often used in the region’s famous red blends to add color, tannins and impart concentrated fruit flavor on the palate. Petite Verdot is primarily grown in France, but also in other countries like Argentina, Australia, Chile, Italy, Portugal, and the United States. Petit Verdot is most used as a blending component. California and Washington state are the most popular areas for Petit Verdot. Our 2018 Petit Verdot has a touch of Merlot to tame the bold tannins, while also providing good structure to the final blend.
